Very luxurious B&B. We had a nice large room with an excellent bathroom including victorian bath tub. The view from the balcony out to sea is beautiful and you can sit outside and enjoy the view! Parking is available off-street. Bill and Gillian did everything to ensure a relaxed stay, very good breakfast in a large room, one large table... More

I never stay in bed and breakfast accommodation, I always stay in hotels but decided to give this B & B a try when in Scotland to visit Morray Firth and watch wild dolphins. It was the best decision I could possibly have made. This accommodation is exceptional. The rooms are spacious, well equipped, immaculate and luxurious. The thing that... More

When we initially booked this I did feel it was a little pricey and more than we would normally pay but can honestly say was worth every penny, the room was clean, nicely decorated with good shower facilities. The room was well stocked and the owners were very welcoming, including cooking a lovely breakfast with plenty of choice. However the... More

A nesspresso coffee machine in the room was great. Breakfast was really nice with a good choice and reasonably well cooked. Fortrose is gorgeous, and the walk out along from the harbour along...

This was our third visit, with friends, to Gill and Bill's 5-star, homely B&B. Quality position, superb breakfasts - but so much more than that! Those special little touches that make you feel you are really being pampered and Gill and Bill's hospitality makes you feel so welcome - nothing is too much trouble. Cannot fault it, everything to a... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights in this really lovely B&B with another couple of friends. The house is a wonderful English countryside home, elegantly furnished and decorated. All the 3 bedrooms are gorgeous and well equipped ( electric iron, umbrella, cleaning products for shoes, bathrobe, etc) with a great view over the bay. We stayed in the n.... More

The B&B lived up to and excelled expectations. The accommodation is excellent with views of the Moray Firth, a place really to wish that your stay would go on forever. I have forgot to mention the breakfasts, food is wonderfuland they set you up well for the day. Gill and Bill are great hosts and make you feel very welcome.
